The image below is from Silloth Green looking towards the town centre. Silloth is a fairly small town with the centre laid out in the 1860s, soon after the railway reached the area in the late 1850s.

The town was designed as a seaside holiday resort, mainly for residents of the city of Carlisle, 22 mile east. The town centre has wide streets with chunky Victorian buildings, no doubt built with the intention of having a much larger town built around it.

The Solway has a number of rivers that run into it such as the Nith, Eden, Annan, and Esk. The solway forms part of the England / Scotland border, with Dumfries and Galloway in Scotland across the water to the north.

Bowness-on-Solway is situated 16 miles east, for the start of the Hadrian's Wall Path that runs about 84 miles east to Newcastle on the east coast of England.
